Since the weather has turned from rainy skies to bright blue skyed sun filled days, I’ve had my eye out for toys that can be used not just indoors but outdoors as well. I’ve particularly been looking for toys for my youngest child that just hit her first birthday almost a month ago. She’s an early walker and has been enjoying toddling all over so toys that can help her dexterity in many ways are fantastic at this point. She’s specifically been having an absolutely good time playing with the Glow in the Dark Sensory Ball from the company Edushape.
My daughter is growing up and her taste in apparel and accessories is changing. She prefers to pick out her own clothes and things where once I had just done it for her. She’s growing up and she’s begun to express herself more. As a bittersweet good-bye to childhood, I’m supporting her in this but still making sure she’s making modest faith-based picks and appropriate choices following the rules that my family has set in place.
Throughout this Bible there are contributions from over 80 women offering reflections upon important topics that are relevant to our current times. These reflections can help one look deeper within their own walk with God and see things in a new light.
Easter is literally next weekend! With that being said, there’s no time like right now to jump into a study to go through on your own or in a group setting on this very important time revolving around the resurrection of Christ. But what study should you do? There’s so many out there, I know. To ease into, watching a film and then discussing and studying it is on of my favorite ways ( especially with a group) to sit down and analyze the application for my life.
Amy Grant’s newest album “Tennessee Christmas” is a great listen! Her vocals are spot on and I love the fact that even her husband joins her on one of the songs! Aside from well known classic favorites, Amy also features songs she wrote from her own holiday experiences. I really like the fact she decided to share with fans her heart. I know many of us can relate to her written thoughts and feelings alive in song during this time of year.
Where Jesus Slept by Norma Lewis will no doubt be a book I reach to read to my children every Christmas Season. I adore the way it is written which starts with one element/person/animal, adds something else, goes backward, and adds something new again on the next page. The cycle the words go in make this book a fun and excellent participatory retelling for littles ones to enjoy. I imagine with multiple readings the story will eventually be memorized!
